All the Chili you can eat!
Bands ‘n Beans has become the biggest party of the year in the north country, a sign of winter’s end and the beginning of spring.
2019 saw our 28th annual event, with hot chili and hot music served up in style! While attendees sampled delicious fare, continuous music played throughout the day on two stages with The Radio Junkies, PJ Ferguson 2, Rich Ortiz, The Switch, Steve and Kenny, Stony Creek Band, Tim Wechgelaer & Chris Carey Band, and Ten Most Wanted. More than twenty area restaurants participated in this hotly contested event. Several hundreds of attendees voted for their favorite chili, and see the award winners listed below!
Other offerings include breads from Rock Hill Bakehouse, raffle prizes and auction items from area merchants. Proceeds from Bands ‘n Beans benefits the Lake George Arts Project.
BIG THANKS to our amazing past and future volunteers: the kitchen crew, ticket sellers, t-shirt crew, raffle sellers, Fort William Henry staff, and to all those who donate to our Silent Auction! You make our Arts Community strong!
This event is a fundraiser for the Lake George Arts Project. Proceeds help fund the Lake George Arts Project’s FREE Art & Music Programs: Summer Concert Series, Lake George Jazz Weekend in Shepard Park and year-round Courthouse Gallery exhibitions.
